eCard Greeting card News

We’re officially award winning!

And we couldn’t be happier about it!

When you’re a small business starting up, there are many challenges you face along the way.

So winning a small business #SBS award and from no other than Theo Paphitis from Dragons Den- well, that certainly feels like a pat on the back!

So what’s the story behind LOLVE eCards?

Well LOLVE is the idea and business baby of its director, Lizzy Dunstan.

In 2016, frustrated at the lack of choice for sending tasteful, elegant but fun & personalised eCards, she came up with a solution in the form of LOLVE eCards.

She also created the word LOLVE- short for Lots of Love, as this seemed the perfect word for gift giving.

After working with web developers in Edinburgh, LOLVE finally launched mid pandemic in June 2020 with a further site upgrade in June 2021 with Edinburgh web developers Geared App.

Lizzy has spent 5 years working with a variety of the most talented artists within the UK to select card designs that she loved & knew that customers would love too.

A little about Lizzy

Well she’s always a busy Lizzy & sometimes a dizzy Lizzy!

As a wife, a mother of 3 and with a career of over 35 years as a nurse, fair trader & a previous part time greeting card trader, LOLVE encompasses many of her core passions.

So whats so unique about LOLVE?

LOLVE was designed to make life easier for busy people. From sending greeting cards & gifts to family & friends on time & on budget can be challenging in our busy lives.

Lizzy wanted an eCard that delivered on style and felt like a virtual gift, that you had to open like a gift-box to reveal its personalised contents.

Charity ethos
It was important to her that LOLVE had a big heart and so it’s charity range was created. She collaborated with a local Scottish charity, Tayside Children with Cancer & Leukaemia (TCCL) for a stand alone eCard range with 100% profit from this range donated to this incredible charity. All artwork for this range has been kindly donated by local Scottish professional artists or created by children associated directly or indirectly with the charity.

Eco friendly product
We’re eco friendly as well! Not only are we a paperless product saving trees, but we also plant a tree for every subscriber to our cards with The Tree App.

Handmade gifts
We features many gifts on our site too – all tasteful & most hand made to help you find the perfect present for that special occasion!

We pride ourselves on being the most personalised, whilst being the most stunning, eCard on the market!

Thank you!
Thank you so much to all of our wonderful customers & supporters for making LOLVE live & breath- without you we simply wouldn’t be.
